NYSAC Adopts Molinaro’s Resolution to “Think DIFFERENTLY” Throughout New York
I appreciate my colleagues on the NYSAC Board of Directors for the support of our ‘Think DIFFERENTLY’ initiative, which has been successful since Dutchess County launched it last year. Residents, businesses and organizations throughout Dutchess County have accepted the challenge to look past our differences and embrace what makes us all human. This resolution seeks to expand that sense of inclusiveness throughout New York, and I encourage other counties to take up our call to action, so that from Long Island to Buffalo, New Yorkers can show the rest of the country how we ‘Think DIFFERENTLY’ about our neighbors with special needs.
